Locksit – Bicycle Security by Jack Godfrey Wood

Locksit is a design-against-crime influenced saddle that immobilizes the bicycle and avoids the need to carry your saddle around with you. Cyclists now only need to take one lock with them (to secure the frame and front wheel) making cycling and parking easier, quicker and more convenient.

1: Unlock lock to release U-bar. 2+3: Push pins inwards to allow seatpost to pivot about the hinge. 4: Place U-bar around the tyre and rim of the back wheel. Insert U-bar into its socket and lock using the key. The bicycle is now immobilized and the saddle secure. 5: Lock the frame and front wheel to an immovable object. Bicycle is now secure.

    Great!
    Now, you have to think something telescopic, adjustable, that lets you fasten the bike at fixed stuff, like gates or else.

    P.s.
    I live in italy.

    So what happens when someone just takes the seat AND the back tire? Definitely on a good track, though.

    this is a great idea. I dont know what you guys dont get about it. the seat pole is fixed to the bike and the seat locks to the back tire. All you need to do is take the frount tire off and lock it with the bike to a fence. very easy.
